They have, as explained by CEO Peter Moore, opted to find alternatives to ensure the club’s workforce is protected in these extraordinary times. They have also apologised in their own words, for “coming to the wrong conclusion last week”.
Spirit of Shankly welcome the club’s honesty, change in plan and willingness to listen and be involved in productive dialogue with several parties. They have also made assurances that the welfare of their staff is paramount.
This news is the best possible outcome SOS members and Liverpool supporters could have hoped for. As ever it once again shows unity is strength.
